Walking on Taipei's oldest rocks at Mount Daluntou
Sitting on bus R5 en route to Yangmingshan, it's clear we'll be going nowhere fast in the huge tailback that snakes up the road ahead and disappears around the corner, with only a steady stream of scooters beside us going at anything more than a snail's pace.

Fuci Trees tell a love story
For some particular reason old trees always astonish me. Whether it is the sheer size of their trunks and branches, the feeling that with a bit of luck you could climb up all the way to the sky ...

The spring weather is changeable. It's raining in the dawn of a February weekend. But it does not scare us enough to cancel a plan to go hiking on the Sinliao Waterfall Trail (新寮瀑布步道).

Explore the forest-embraced — Sinliao Waterfall Trail
Along the knife-edge: Zhongyang Point
The solitary line of a narrow, overgrown trail heads off into the distance. Jagged, pointed peaks rise up in front, sheer cliffs of bare rock plunge terrifyingly from the trail into the valley far, far below and fantastic, slowly changing panoramas open up over the unlimited expanses of mountainous country laid out below.

Truly Taiwan's Treasure: Taitung, pure and natural
Chiayi's Tropic of Cancer landmark
Anyone who's driven along the main road between Tainan County (台南縣) and Chiayi City (嘉義市) will have seen it. If you've taken the train -- the slower conventional train that is, not the high-speed railway -- between Chiayi and points south, you'll likely have noticed it. It looks somewhat like a water tower, but with windows.

Exploring the Mysterious Feitsui Reservoir
Glimpses of its emerald surface are one of the highlights of the trip along the old Taipei to Ilan highway (now blissfully quiet, since most traffic between the two counties takes the new highway through the 13 kilometer-long Shueshan Tunnel), yet it's only standing on the bank of this huge, serpentine expanse of water that its great scenic beauty can finally be enjoyed to the full.

Walking to Dongshige Old Trail in Pingsi
About half an hour after leaving Pingsi High School, the trail enters a clearing, and several abandoned buildings and a fenced-off mine shaft entrance lie beside the path.
